Cradled by the mighty Mississippi River on the east and south, and the meandering Wapsipinicon River on the north, Scott County, Iowa offers an extraordinary combination of quality living styles.

Scott County has some of the richest agricultural land in the nation; the adventure and history of small river towns on the banks of the Mississippi; and the opportunities of urban life in dynamic metropolitan communities.

You'll find it all here. Since the 1830's, this unique location has flourished, melding the industries that developed from river transportation and agriculture. Also, the historically strong work ethic of the people of Iowa and their ideals of preserving family values, has helped Scott County flourish.

Today's Scott County is vivacious. For newcomers and visitors curious about what this 465-square-mile county is all about, this is a good starting point. But to realize the full scale of its offerings, visit the Mississippi Valley Welcome Center, located along Interstate 80 at LeClaire, Iowa, one of Scott County's unique communities.

There you can learn as you overlook the incredibly beautiful Mississippi River Valley. The Welcome Center is dedicated to serving up a sampling of all Scott County has to offer, including a regional artist's gallery. Then discover the rest of the county, its 17 cities, numerous unincorporated communities and rural subdivisions.

You'll find out everywhere you go, Scott County is a place where strangers become fast friends, and newcomers become welcome neighbors.
